EMBODIED LIVES: GLIMPSES

Evenly suspended attention In my movement work, I do not have a specific outcome or result in mind; rather I provide a space where it is possible to sense one’s own condition, one’s contact to oneself and to the world. My working attitude has a strong parallel to ‘evenly suspended attention’ as used in psychoanalysis. I maintain this ‘evenly suspended attention’ not only in the sense of feeling but also with my own psychosomatic body. Just as the analyst goes on the journey with the patient, exploring his own feelings, fantasies and thoughts, so I go into movement together with the patient without knowing how we will move, or what the theme will be.
